MODERN FAMILY KNITS is a collection of 21 hand-knit designs for you and your whole family.
The pieces in this collection are inspired by my own family and what we would wear. Casual, contemporary and wearable, many of the knits in the book are unisex and knitted in neutral colors and can be worn by men and women, boys and girls and are sure to become foundation pieces in anyone’s wardrobe. Modern Family Knits has something for everyone – new knitters may find their first sweater in these pages and experienced knitters will enjoy the combination of textural knitting stitches with modern shapes. To me, loving the pieces you knit and wanting to wear them often is the definition of hand-knit success – hand knits that your entire family can enjoy. That’s what I hope to share with you in this collection.
Modern Family Knits is available from your local or online Rowan stockist and on Amazon.com.
